LePort Montessori School Cobble Hill

An authentic, nurturing Montessori school, offering toddler daycare, preschool/kindergarten offering a Spanish immersion option for toddler and preschool/kindergarten, with a spacious rooftop playground and large indoor gross motor area.

Our school is a newly-renovated, charming, landmarked building located in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn. With an emphasis on simplicity, beauty, and the natural world, our classrooms invite children to explore materials, concepts, and friendships free from the clutter and hurried pace of a large city. Our school offers a rooftop play area with stunning views of lower Manhattan and all of Brooklyn, and provides students with plenty of room for both play and outdoor lessons, like gardening and practical life. We also boast a large indoor gross motor room for children to run and play indoors when the weather disallows for outdoor fun. We are located minutes from Downtown Brooklyn in the Cobble Hill neighborhood between Douglass and Degraw St, close to the Bergen Street and Carroll Street subway stops. Our convenient daily schedules are tailored for working parents: we open as early as 7 am, and are open until 6 pm, with year-round program options. Our shorter half-day programs for toddlers and preschoolers are a great option for combining a high-quality school experience with time at home.

Montessori is not a trademarked term, Montessori schools vary widely in quality: some daycares and preschools use the name for marketing, without delivering on the promise of a great education. Our program has all the components of authentic Montessori: we offer family-like, mixed-age communities, highly trained teachers, and extended stretches of uninterrupted time for children to freely select and fully-explore the many enticing Montessori learning materials they find in their classrooms. The Cobble Hill team looks forward to getting to know you, and to helping you discover whether and how Montessori can offer a great environment for your child and family.

Give the Gift of Bilingualism

Spanish Immersion for Toddler and Preschool/Kindergarten

Toddlers and preschoolers have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn a second language almost effortlessly. In the Spanish immersion Montessori classrooms for toddler and preschool, both the Montessori-trained head teacher and the assistant teacher are native Spanish speakers, and speak solely in Spanish with the children from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm everyday.

Students receive Montessori lessons in Spanish, sing songs in Spanish, and in preschool, learn to write and read in Spanish. The mixed-age Montessori communities are rich environments for natural language acquisition. You can give your child the gift of being bilingual—just by enrolling them in our Spanish immersion preschool!

See Spanish immersion in action and listen to why parents are thrilled with their children’s Spanish immersion experiences at LePort Montessori.

Claire O’Neill
Director of Admissions and Parent Experience

Welcome! I’d love to show you our school.

There is such happiness and inspiration in a Montessori classroom. As a child, I attended the Montessori school my mother founded and subsequently taught at that very school, after completing my American Montessori Society Early Childhood training.

I’d love to meet with you and show you around our school. Choosing the right environment for your toddler or preschooler is so important, and I’d be honored if you let me answer your questions, share my experiences, and help you decide if joining our Montessori community makes sense for your family.

Please contact me to set-up a tour: it will be an hour well spent in making one of the most important decisions in your child’s life.
